SOME OPINIONS FROM BANKERS
The Prospect tor Bnsiness Very
Advantages of Commercial Under
takings in Southern California.
Cashjer Shaffer of the First National
Hank Gives a Logical Presenta
tion of His Opinions—ldeas
of Other Bnsiness Men.
Wishing to learn how the public had
been treating the banks since the recent
financial troubles, a Herald representa
tive dropped in upon several and gath
ered the following from the officers in
terviewed at the different institutiona.
At the First National everything
seemed cheerful and lively and no one
could from appearances have guessed
that there had been the slightest ripple
in the financial world for years.
Mr. J. M. Elliott, the president, being
absent, Mr. G. B. Shaffer, the efficient
assistant cashier, gave in answer to in
quiries the following statements indi
cating how little the excitement in the
eastern money market was affecting
tbeir bank, and also how little it wonld
affect tbe people of Southern California.
He said that their bank had entire
confidence in the future prosperity of
this locality, and was satisfied that it
would not be but a short time before
everythiug returned to ita normal con
"In regard to the general business of
the country," said Mr. Shaffer, "there
is absolutely nothing needed but confi
dence on the part of the public. There
is probably just as much or more money
in the United States today as there has
been at any time notwithstanding the
apparent heavy shipments of gold abroad
some months ago. This money, if the
banks would feel at liberty to use it,
would at once rehabilitate trade all
over the country, and the present times
of depression would soon be forgotten.
"There is in the city of Los Angeles at
this moment probably more money than
there has been since 1887, or perhaps
even this restriction should be removed.
"While criticisms have been made
upon banks for withholding loans at the
present time it ia only just, considering
the existing condition of affairs, that
they should do ao until tbe mind of the
public in regard to them not only
here, but thronghout the United Statea,
should have settled down to aomething
"Aa to onr own bank, that tbe public
in general have the ntmoat confidence
in it and its management ie evidenced
hy the large number of subscriptions
that were offered for the $200,000 stock
which it was proposed to ibbu.o. This
amount has been fully subscribed, and
haa all been paid in, and will give the
bank not only thia increaee in ita pecu
niary strength, bnt the additional as
sistance of some 125 well known persons
in Los Angeles city and connty, persons
who are able in the time of great de
pression to lay their hands upon the
money to pay for the stock for which
they ad readily subscribed.
"'We think our bank has shown its sta
bility in the manner in which it recup
erated its condition, in that, after pay
ing out some $050,000 oi its $1,050,000
deposited, when it reopened twenty-five
days thereafter it bad collected fund*
sufficient to equal 50 per cent of its re
maining $1,300,000 deposits, and this,
too, almost altogether upon its own re
sources and without borrowing from any
of its correspondents and without dis
tressing or jeopardizing the interests of
its borrowers, clearly showing' tbe very
excellent condition of ite available as
sets. This is a most extraordinary
showing, for it ia doubtful if any other
institution of its kind could have done
more than this.
The free manner in which the cash
was paid out by our bank during the
run of two days, though very agreeable
to some 900 frightened depositors, has
been criticized. If instead of greatly in
creasing its paying force, as, was done,
we had reduced it to one paying teller,
and worked for time with the large
amount of cash on hand, the run could
have been successfully withstood lor
several weeks, and in that time the bank
could have collected enough more funds
to have paid out 65 per cent of its depos
its before it would have been forced to
"This criticism, however, I think is too
greatly emphasized, as such a method
haß its commendations.
"The bank has been in the habit of
waiting on everyone of its many custom
ers promptly, making it a point to never
keep them waiting, and knowing their
own good financial condition, and rely
ing in the confidence they hr-.d every
reason to suppose tbe depositors of the
bank entertained for the institution,
tbey felt assured of tbeir ability to meet
all uemands tbat would or could possi
bly be made upon the bank, and thereby
keep down the appearance of a run and
preserve to a greater extent the bank's
general standing and enviable reputation
in the community.
"Had tbe withdrawals been of lees mag
nitude this plan of meeting every de
mand without restraint wonld have been
successful, and everyone would then
have said we had prusreued a proper and
most commendable course. ,
"The bank is certainly sound and in a
most excellent condition (as was proven
by tbe thorough examination by the
three national back examiners and
their favorable report thereon) as also
we firmly believe are all the other banks
of the city.
"There is no reason whatever for any
lack of confidence in the banking insti
tutions of this city, and after the
thorough test to which they have been
put, no recurrence oi the late panic in
this city is possible.
"This locality contains a class of young
and energetic business men, entirely
different from the make-up of tbe busi
ness centers east. The institutions here
controlled by such men are bound to re
cover quickly, especially as the last few
years in California have been most
prosperous and in the immediate neigh
borhood of Los Angeles new enterprises,
tuch as tbe packing houses, smelters,
ftc, are bonnd to be of great benefit.
The grain crop ia unusually heavy and
everything indicatea that this year the
vineyards and orcharda will do equally
aa well. Through these sources and
others a large amount of money is
bound to be brought into Los Angeles
county. There can be no donbt but
that Southern California ia now in aa
good if not better financial condition
than any other seotlon of the country."
A gentleman formerly interested in
banking in the east, who has considera
ble acquaintance with financial meth
ods, in conversation with the Herald
reporter stated that the troubles caused
by want of confidence in a certain class

ME. HARPER'S IDEAS.
C. F. Harper of the firm of Harper,
Reynolds & Co. says they are doing as
good a business today and have been
during tbe past month as they did dur
ing the corresponding time last year.
Mr. Harper, being one of our most suc
cessful pioneer merchants, should be
able to give an opinion that would have
great weight among the people in this
locality. He feels that to compare things
in a financial and business way as we
now find them with the condition, of
business in 1874 and 1875 is ridiculous,
as during those ye,ara we were Buffering,
not only from an eastern financial flurry
but also from a drouth, and conse
quently poor crops.
Let those who (while excited a few
weeks ago) gave notice to tbe savings
banks that they wished to withdraw
their deposits now that all Is quiet go
to these banks and waive their claim on
account of notice and these banks
would at once begin making loans.

DURKEE'S IRON GATES.
THEY EVOKE SOME POINTS ON THE
LAW OTP CONTRACTS.
Judge Tan Dyke Hand* Down an In
teresting Opinion and Settle! a
Case of Interest to Bas
The case ef Harry Philp vs. J. E. Dur-
I kee wbb decided yesterday by Judge Van
Dyke in accordance with an opinion
filed giving judgment for the plain tiff
The action was brought npon a con
tract alleged to have been made by the
defendant with Frnhling Bros. August
21, 1891, for the manufacture of some
iron gates and lamp to be erected upon
posts prepared by defendant upon his
premises for $430 which waa assigned to
The dsfonae to be considered was the
insanity of the defendant at the time Of
entering into the contract.
Tbe evidence showed that the defend
ant came to the firm, inquired about the
manufacture of iron gates, examined
patterns and tbe following day returned
and ordered them to manufacture tbem
for the price stated. The price was not
only reasonable but below the real value.
At tbe time the defendant transacted
the business the court aays there was
nothing in the evidence to" indicate that
his conduct was out of the ordinary busi
ness way. At the same time he was
dealing with the Schroder & Johnson
company quite extensively and pur
chased a large amount of merchandise
from them and his appearance was per
The Fruhllng Bros, completed the
goods during September, when Mr.
Frnhling drove to the premises of the
defendant to see if the posts were ready,
so that tbe gates conld bs hung. He
did not see the defendant and left word
with the man in charge of tbe place.
Some time thereafter tbe defendant'e
father-in-law requested Frnhling not to
proceed any furtber with the gatee, but
at the time they were practically com
pleted and were ready to be set np be
fore the defendant became notoriously
insane. He was adjudged insane and
his wife was appointed his guardian.
The court in discussing the issues
Bays that tbe liability of insane persons
on contracts is a subject upon which
there has been considerable diversity of
adjudication. As a general proposition,
one who is non compos mentis, whether
by reason of insanity or idiocy, cannot
make a binding contract, because there
cannot be that agreement of minds
which is the very essence of a contract.
It seems to be entirely settled, however,
that in order to avoid a contract on the
ground of unsoundness there must be
an inability to know what the act ie to
which tbe contract relates or intelli
gently to will to do such act.
"Thia ie an action," concludes the
court, "for the detriment caused by the
breach of a buyer's agreement to accept
and pay for personal property where the
title and property ie still vested in the
seller, and in euch case the measure of
damages is the excess of the amount
dne from the buyer to tbe seller, under
contract, over the value of the property
to tbe seller. It is claimed on the part
of the plaintiff that he ia entitled to the
full contract price, inasmuch as the
property in hie bands ia of no value,
suggesting that the defendant would
then have a right to the property.
"This is not an taction, however, for
the price of an article sold and delivered,
and the measure of damages in this case
is as stated, and ia fixed by the code;
C. 0., 8310-3311. It is incredible that
tbe gates and lamp are not of some
value; tbey would be worth something
even aa old iron, and their value in the
handa of the defendant must be de
ducted from the contract price of the
gates when hung according to contract.
Judgment will go foi the plaintiff in the
turn of $380."

atreet. Mr. Last was chairman of the last
county central committee, and a staunch
believer in the old Jefferaonian Democ
racy. When asked what was. the proba
ble cause of the financial trouble, what
should be the remedy, and how it had
affected him, he gave in substance the
"Why we should have been caught
here so early I cannot understand. Tbe
merchants were all doing a fine busi
ness, tbe prices of real estate were
steadily on the rise, and the daijy trans
fers were rapidly increasing. Even the
banks were in fine shape, taken as a
whole, carrying more than the usual
amount of cash.
C. F. A. Last.
"Why a panic should come in the
midst of Buch prosperity I cannot say,
but such as it was it did come, and I am
not enre bnt that it will eventually prove
beneficial. In my own business it has
cut but a small figure, aa my sales have
been much larger during the month just
past than tbev were during the corres
ponding month last season. I shall not
push my collections, as I know it is hard
for my customers to borrow money
where tbey have not the cash on hand
to meet payments now coming due.
"One reason my sales have been in
creasing is that Arizona and New
Mexico dealers are eending in larger
orders this hear than ever before, and
the heavy rain in those states has in
sured them a most prosperous year, es
pecially in the agricultural districts.

United States government should pass a
pure food law and enforce it, thereby
preventing the adulteration of food pro
ducts, wince, liquors, etc.
"We ship, large quantities of Califor
nia wines end brandies east, and occa
sionally make shipments to Europe, but
eastern people claim they do not often
get tbe same class of California liquors
there that they are in tbe habit of get
ting when visiting here.
"This condition of things is directly
chargeable to the lack of proper protec
tion, by the government permitting
adulteration of all kinds of products
without any regard as to purity. If the
government would pass laws effecting
food products similar to those in vogue
in Germany, and enforce them, the ben
efit to vinyardistß, wineries and dealers
in this locality would soon effect a
greatly increased demand for our goods
When asked how he had been able to
work up such a large trade covering bo
much territory Mr. Last said:
"The business in which I am now en
gaged was established in 1870 and from
the time I entered into partnership with
Mr. Joseph Bayer in 1880, I have en
deavored to carry only carefully selected
wines and liquors of all kinds and buy
only the oldest and best brands obtain
able, aa a resnlt where I once secure a
customer I almost always have been
able to keep him.
"The wines and brandies of California
are as good as the European bands, only
of eouree theirs have had more time to
age and thie is the only difference.
"All the large European restaurants
carry California wines, and -there ia a
good demand for them. We are sure
before very long to see a good foreign
trade in onr wines and brandies. Ido
not see the slightest reason for the
people of Southern California to worry
over bard time. The last two years have
been most prosperous, and every bank
that closed its doors during the panic
and is now open is safer and stronger
than it was at any time previous to tbe
time it closed.

in Los Angeles and Southern California,

A WIFE'S CHARGES AGAINST BEB
Mrs. Leonhardt'e Pitiful Story of Abase
and Desertion—She Asserts That
Her Husband Has Sank
to a Low Level*
A hollow-eyed weeping woman, with
a baby at her breast, applied ior aid
yesterday afternoon at the police sta
There was nothing very original in
the story of her desertion by a heartless
scoundrel, except the fact that in her
case the man appears to be more than
She gave her name as Mrs. Ed Leon
hardt, and she told the reporter that her
husband was at one time employed by
Street Superintendent Watson.
They were married IS years ago, Mrs.
Leonhardt stated, and he made a good
husband until three years ago. Then
Mrs. Leonhardt states that he became
infatuated with the notorious Grace Car
lyle, and from that time his whole na
ture seemed to change.
There were (onr children born to them,
and their father toon began to ill-treat
and beat them. Mrs. Leonhardt states
that a favorite amusement of her hus
band's was to induce tbe little baby to
touch the lighted end of a cigar, and he
would shriek with laughter at the child's
cries of pain.
His brutality was not confined to his
children, and the poor wife says she
often went to sleep with the marks of
his blows upon her'body.
On one occasion she states that she
had him arrested for beating her, but
relented on his promising to amend.
Bnt the promises were not kept.
Every cent the wife made he spent in
the company of the woman, Carl vie, and
in consequence Mrs. Leonhardt and her
children were often without the bare
nencessaries of existence.
Then, Mrs. Leonhardt states, her hus
band sank still lower; from being tbe
lover of the woman he became a pro
curer tor her bouse of infamy. Mrs.
Leonhardt states that there were two
young girls living in the same house she
and her husband lodged in. One of
these fell a victim to Leonbardt's brutal
designs, and the other escaped through
Mrs. Leonhardt's timely interference.
Three months ago, so she states, the
unhappy wife learned that he had gone
to San Francisco to obtain recruits for
his mistress' brdthel.
Since then his wife has neither seen
nor heard of him. »
With herself and her four children
homeless and starving, and smarting
nnder the insult of being left for a dis
reputable, Mrs. Leonhardt applied at
police headquarters yesterday for a war
rant for the man's arrest. He is sup
posed to be either in Savisville or Sacra
Mrs. Leonhardt is in a deplorable
condition, being absolutely without
money, and with four children, one of
whom is a 3 months old child, entirely
dependent upon her for their support.
Mrs. Leonhardt herself is in a weak
state of health, and is almost insane
from grief and want.
